    No, not in the library but a site search.

    I'd bet the tortoise scales are dyed horn, though I've never seen it on a Clauss razor before. It isn't the genuine article, whatever it is.

    However, that presentation box is a find, and the razors are both going to be fantastic shavers. Clauss are fine, fine razors.

    To date, I had only ever seen single razor presentation boxes from Clauss, and almost exclusively in terrible condition. It looks like yours is in very good shape.

    That's the issue I'm having I can't find any thing with paired razor boxes from them. Let alone a miss match scale from them. Been frustrating to say the least.

    Chatham, Ontario, went to school with someone from Chatham...welcome to the forum.

    The scales as you know are not genuine tortoise or ivory, and it can sometimes be tough to tell the difference.

    Nice find, get them shave ready and you're good to go....

    Yea, a little Podunk town here. But I actually came from Blenheim, and even smaller town just south of Chatham. But thanks for the welcome, and I'm loving it so far guys. Everyone here is great. Extremely helpful and kind individuals. I am happy to have become a part of the scene here. A wealth of endless information and beautiful razors to see and learn about. I love every aspect of this place. What was the gents name from school anyways if you don't mind me asking, maybe I know them.

    For the record, here are two razors, one genuine tortoise, the other "faux" tortoise...can you tell which one is real?
